Haiti missions began after a devastating earthquake hit the country in January 2010. Mission Youth started working hand-in-hand with the Missionaries of Charity (religious order founded by Mother Teresa) in their various missions: the Clinic for Malnourished Children, the Home for the Dying, the Wounds Clinic, and St. Joseph's & St. Therese's schools. Each morning our missionaries organize a summer camp for hundreds of local children, providing fun and educational activities in a safe and loving environment. Today we continue to serve children, young adults, and families who belong to the most vulnerable groups in Haiti.
Mexico missions reach out to the communities in Mexico that face great needs. Our missions are essentially a pilgrimage where you will be "roughing it" with friends and stepping outside yourself to be a missionary of Christ. Your mission work will serve both the spiritual and physical needs of the people you encounter. Humanitarian projects in Ahuazotepec, Puebla include constructing homes or churches, laying floors, and fixing roofs. Spiritual evangelization work includes opportunities to interact with the townspeople by hosting kid’s camps, giving spiritual talks, leading sports activities and organizing liturgical celebrations.
